We might not be in New Orleans, but that’s no excuse to ignore Fat Tuesday – especially not with tempting cocktail specials and fresh donuts at two of our favorite restaurants. Kick off your Mardi Gras crawl at Fairmount’s London Grill, where the bar will offer special Mardi Gras pricing all week long on Sazeracs, French 75s and more. Then, head down to at Brauhaus Schmitz, where pastry whiz Jessica Nolen is whipping up her famous Fastnachts, a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition for pre-Lenten indulgence: German potato donuts that are tossed in nutmeg-spiced sugar and available by the half-dozen ($8) and the dozen ($14). They’re perfect for sharing among friends over a beer or taking home for breakfast (or both). Whether you’re preparing to fast for Lent or just need an excuse to knock back a cocktail (or two) and wolf down a donut (or 12), Team ProTip has you covered.
